Roundup: The times – and strata crimes – are a-changin’


The times are certainly changing .  Not only has Bob Dylan won a Nobel Prize but there are only seven more sleeps until strata law changes in NSW make all our lives so much easier … or not.

OK, I admit that was a stretch (so I could get a picture to go with this piece) but I have been commissioned to write an instant guide to the top ten strata law changes you really should know about.  The top 10 has stretched to 21, and that’s without even trying.

The article is online in the Herald as well as being available right here on the Flat Chat website.

Meanwhile the questions come thick and fast on the Flat Chat Forum.  Here’s a selection of the latest discussions:

Can you use emails sent from the strata manager to the committee as evidence in mediation or a Tribunal hearing. That’s HERE.

Is it fair to let cat wander on common property when dogs have to be on a leash? That’s HERE.

The law says you must notify the owners corp when a new tenant moves into your property but the strata manager won’t issue breach notices.  That’s HERE.

Is it worth getting a “compliance audit” to itemise all the mistakes at strata committee has made?  And who would do it? That’s HERE.

Pergolas on balconies need repair.  Who should pay – the owners corp or the lot owners? That’s HERE.
